This is the first part of 2 podcasts where I discuss what is going on in many places in rural America. These were originally #breakfastwithbill periscopes. In certain places, especially states that have the economic climate for growth in rural America, too much growth is a problem. I am not talking about these areas here.
I am talking about areas that are downsizing. Much of this came about because one of the regular listeners to #breakfastwithbill sent me lots of information about what is going on with rural hospitals and what is going on in what he called “pass through” counties. This is just not happening in the Great Plains States but also in some places in the Midwest especially Illinois.
